Quandaries and Queries


My name is Vicent. I am a secondary student having trouble solving the following exercise:
Find all the values of p (where p is a natural number), for which the numbers p+1, p+2 y p+4 are prime.
I would appreciate it if you helped me to solve it. Thanks.


Hi Vincent,

p+1 and p+2 are consecutive numbers so one of them is even and the other is odd. What even numbers are primes?
